Birthplace of Baseball: New York?
State of NY disses Hoboken – calls itself “birthplace of baseball”
Historians, residents and politicians all love repeating the phrase “Hoboken: The birthplace of baseball.” Heck, we even have an entire intersection devoted to this premise.
However, if you’re a New York State resident – you can now get customized license plates – calling NY the “birthplace of baseball.”
So who’s right?
